Gotta love the different sizes and shapes that teapots can take. This one is the Aladdin style and features a beautiful almost Carolina blue color. Maybe that is why I fell in love with it.
This is one of the many Hall teapots that I have in my collection and I absolutely love anything Hall. The company is located in East Liverpool, Ohio and is one of the premiere American ceramics manufacturing plants. Hall China is one of two potteries under the HLC Inc. brand, the other being Homer Laughlin China.
This teapot can be traced back to the 1930’s or 1940’s time frame and is in pristine shape. I love the shape of it and it is a great pouring teapot as well. Not all teapots pour well but the Hall teapots in my collection are all quality when it comes to “pourability”.
Hall teapots are stamped with a seal that helps to identify their age and value. I haven’t done much research because I just like this one but if it was worth more than I paid for it I would be happy.
I need to dig out all of my Hall teapots and group them together so I know what I have. Yes, I am unclear on what ones I have so doing Teapot Tuesday is a great way to keep track of them. But I honestly need to be more organized and intentional about keeping a catalog of them. One of these days….
Do you have any Hall china in your home? Do you remember a loved one using a teapot like this years ago? I would love to hear about it in the comments. Remember that each comment on any blog post this month means a donation to our Comments for a Cause – Folds of Honor.
